TIGHT TIGHT TIGHT!!! LOL
All the racy car mechanical & suspension bits require lots more maintenance, too. Shoot, you can easily spend $3k just on the safety stuff you have to WEAR to go racing (undies, shoes, socks, gloves, fire suit, helmet, and hans).
That's sort of a turn-off. Put her in something SA rated, like an Arai, and then the hawtness level goes through the roof.
Research the organization doing the DE before going. Don't go to stupid ones. Talk to your friends about various groups organizing.
I just came back from WGI event with Trackmasters. Very high speeds and very competent organization. The open track group did not have any crashes and any drivers not following the rules strictly enough were deal with promptly(including myself for an apparent no point-by pass).
Most BMWCCA events are well run and so are PCA and Audi club schools. Single car accidents do happen but in almost all cases the driver is the only one responsible. Some happen due to spilled fluids but the same can happen in racing.
Also not every venue is a good venue in terms of safety. At the Glen the armco is very close but that is a factor in single car accidents. The accident described above is impossible at the Glen or any other place I go to. I will make a note not to consider Pocono much after this.
There is risk in DE, duh! But wheel-to-wheel racing is a totally different thing. I have plenty of BMWCCA friends who have been punted off the track during a race. Don't know anyone who had anything similar during a DE and I know a lot more DE guys than racers.
"please do not post any video clips regarding the accident between the EVO, NSX and G35 at POcono Raceway 05/06/06
The NSX is my Cousins and the G35 is my friends
any materials may hamper their lawsuit. Thank you for your support"
We need to start a track group that only has hot, topless, female instructors. That would make it so easy to sell out events, and also help determine who is gay by whether they advance to a solo group.
"Hi, my name is MCain, and I've been in green for 5 years now..."
as much as we can, just to fucck with those ambulance chasers who want ot ruin our sport.
